Idaho Additions to Income

FEDERAL NET OPERATING LOSS CARRYFORWARD

Generally the allowable federal NOL carryover isn't the same amount allowed on the Idaho return. Therefore, you must enter on line 1 any NOL carryover included on your federal return. The allowable Idaho NOL carryover will then be claimed as a subtraction on line 1, Part B.

CAPITAL LOSS CARRYOVER

Enter on line 2 any capital loss claimed on your federal return (Schedule D) incurred before you became a resident of Idaho, or capital losses from activities that weren't taxable by Idaho.

NON-IDAHO STATE AND LOCAL BOND INTEREST AND DIVIDENDS

Enter the amount of interest and dividends, net of related expenses, you received from municipal bonds of other state governments, including their counties or cities, or from obligations of any foreign country. This income isn't reported on your federal return.

This includes your distributive share of interest and dividends not taxable under the IRC from Form ID K-1, Part B, line 3. However, do not include the interest income from Idaho municipal securities reported of form ID k-1, Part B, line 5, or the expenses relating to Idaho municipal securities reported of form ID k-1, Part B, line 7b.

IDAHO COLLEGE SAVINGS ACCOUNT WITHDRAWAL

If you make a nonqualified withdrawal from an Idaho college savings account, enter the amount withdrawn less any amounts reported on your federal Form 1040. Withdrawals from Idaho College Savings Programs that are transferred to a qualified program operated by another state must be included on line 4. The amount added back is limited to your contributions deducted in the year of transfer and the prior tax year.

OTHER ADDITIONS

RETIREMENT PLAN LUMP-SUM DISTRIBUTIONS

Enter the taxable amount of a lump-sum distribution from a retirement plan reported on federal Form 4972. The amount subject to Idaho tax includes the ordinary income portion and the amount eligible for the federal capital gain election.

PARTNER AND SHAREHOLDER ADDITIONS

Partners and shareholders must include their share of the Idaho additions to partnership and S corporation income not included on the federal Schedule K-1. This information is available from the preparer of the partnership or S corporation return. For example: Interest income from other state governments not taxable for federal purposes isn't included on a federal Schedule K-1. The partner or shareholder must report that interest income.

IDAHO MEDICAL SAVINGS ACCOUNT WITHDRAWALS

If you withdraw funds from an Idaho medical savings account and don't use the funds to pay eligible medical expenses, the withdrawal is subject to Idaho tax. Report this amount as an other addition. Eligible medical expenses include medical, vision and dental care, medical insurance premiums, and long-term care expenses. If you make a withdrawal that is subject to tax and you are under age 59 1/2, the withdrawal is subject to penalty. The penalty is 10% of the amount withdrawn. Enter the amount of the penalty.

EDUCATOR EXPENSES

If you are claiming the deduction up to $250 for educator out-of pocket expenses allowed by the Internal Revenue Code, report this amount as an other addition.
